Your tires are probably one of the most neglected things on your car, yet they are one of the most important components on your vehicle that when they fail, you and your passengers’ safety is at risk. Keeping your tires balanced, rotated, and aligned should be at the top of your priority when maintaining your vehicle. Our technicians can inspect your tires and take care of the service needed on them.
Tire Rotation and Balance
The tires on your vehicle take a beating from the road. In order to take good care of them, you need to have them rotated about every six months or around 10,0000 kms. This allows the tires to wear more evenly which in return will allow them to last longer. You may not think that rotating your tires is very important but think again. Overlooking your tire service could cause your tires to not be road-worthy which means you can hydroplane on wet or iced roads more easily.
Along with rotating your tires, you need to balance them regularly. Tire balancing helps the tires to wear evenly, gives your vehicle a smooth ride, and extends the life of your tires by evenly distributing the weight around your vehicle. You can often recognize the signs that your tires need to be balanced. One of the signs is vibration. It can usually be felt at higher speeds. If you feel the vibration, let our experienced technicians inspect your tires and get you riding smoothly again.
Rotating and balancing tires go hand in hand with wheel alignments. Wheel alignments are also important for extending the life of your tires. Usually, alignment is completed when new tires are put on the vehicle, but overtime misalignment can happen by hitting a pothole or something similar, bumping into a curb, or just worn out suspension parts. One of the obvious signs of misalignment is your vehicle pulling to the left or right. Although wheel alignment is not part of the regular maintenance, it is recommended to get an alignment every two to three years on regular tires or a little more often on wider tires.
